by DAVID M. LEVIN
While St. Johns County's
Office of Budget and
Management continues to
trim a final $4.4 million
from the proposed $713 mil-
lion budget, the head of at
least one nonprofit group
expressed confidence that
her organization will not be
immediately hurt by cuts.
S "I am not living in fear,"
Cathy Brown, executive
director of the St. Johns
County Council on Aging,
said in a telephone inter-
view this week.
"I know that we will find a
way. This county will not let
down the most vulnerable."

analyst for St. Johns County,
said the state tax cuts, will

Legislature, approved cuts in
property taxes that are esti-
mated to save the average
taxpayer $200 per year. The
savings over the next five
years are estimated at a total
$15 billion to Florida prop-

Joyner receives super marks
By DAVID M. LEVIN
St. Johns County schools
Joyner received high marks,
a raise and a contract exten-
sion Tuesday by the St.
Johns County School Board.
"He has exceeded expecta-
tions across the board,"
Beverly Slough, School
Board chair, said in a tele-
Wednesday. "The highest
grade you can receive is
Board members said they

staff as student scores con-

Students in St. Johns dis-
trict schools achieved high
marks on the FCAT and
Sunshine State Standards
for the 1.0th year in a row .
"What amazes me about
him is that he has a rather
unique ability to see the big
picture, but also sees the
small details as well," Slough
Board members evaluated
Joyner based on leadership,
information and analysis,
strategic quality planning,
human resource develop-
ment and management, stu-
dent performance, customer
focus and satisfaction, busi-
ness and fiscal management,
and facilities management.
In all categories, the vast
majority of evaluations. are
In his evaluation, School
Board member Bill Fehling
of Ponte Vedra Beach lauded
Joyner's leadership style and
his ability to "communicate
his vision and his goals to a
very diversified audience."
Joyner came from the
Orange County (Fla.) School
District, which, Fehling said,
was "bursting with growth"
much like St. Johns County
is going through now.
"There is no question Joe
exceeds in all areas," Fehling
wrote in his evaluation.
Because his overall grade
by the board was the highest
he could obtain, Joyner, who
began is post in July 2003,
received an additional year
on his contract.
Joyner also received a 4
percent cost of' living
increase in his salary, which
is estimated at around
$142,000, Fehling said.

The Leader's Opinion
Leave beach cleaner
than you found it
June 29 through July 5 has been designated "National
Clean Beaches Week."
That is according to a resolution introduced by U.S.
Senator Mel Martinez. ,
Perhaps the resolution should be amended to create a
Clean Beaches Year, though it is doubtful that a resolu-
tion will have any meaningful effect on those who care-
lessly trash the beach.
This Saturday, volunteers will gather on the beachfront
here to pick up trash left by careless beachgoers who
could not bother to pick up their own trash. (See details
in this issue). A similar cleanup is scheduled for July 5 in
the early morning to clean up the refuse left by
Independence Day celebrants.
.Typically, the cleanup crews fill dozens of bags with
trash and perform a valuable service.
It's a shame their efforts are needed, but clearly too
many beachgoers all too often trash our greatest natural
Sen. Martinez said he introduced his resolution to rec-
ognize the considerable value of beaches.
"Florida is one of the top beach destinations in the
world and we attract millions of tourists annually," said
Martinez. "This resolution draws attention to the price-
less value of the beaches of Florida and our nation, and
the need to keep our beaches safe and clean for their
recreational enjoyment, as well as the environmental
and economic value they provide.
Anyone who has visited the shoreline to take a dip in
the ocean or just enjoyed a glimpse of the sun rising over
the ocean can and should recognize the value of
Volunteers who take the time to walk the beach and
clean up after their fellow beachgoers deserve kudos.
Even those who can't tote a trash bag during a cleanup,
can resolve each time they visit the beach to leave it a. lit-
tle cleaner than they found it.
The beach is worth all our efforts.

I know the saying "We don't
care how it's done up north"
Well maybe on this issue you
should. I graduated from highly
school in 1974 from J.P.'
Stevens H.S. In Edison, NJ.
And way back then I was
taught about "SEX EDUCA-
TION" starting in the ninth
grade going thru to my senior
year in High School. And I
called the school this morning
to find out if it is still taught
and it is. Up "NORTH" they live
in the 21 century not in the
"DARK AGES" like you do
down here. Don't you think it's
time to start to teach the chil-
dren of this state the whole
spectrum of "SEX ED" How
their bodies work and why
they get those funny feelings?
Instead of leaving it up to their
parents, who are either too
busy or really don't care or
know themselves. Don't you'
think the kids are hungry for
the information that the
teacher have to offer them?
And don't try to tell me
about the religion aspect of it
because I don't want to hear
about that!! The Churches

Teens must be fully
informed these days
To the editor:
The reality of the current health statistics in
Jacksonville speak clearly for themselves. Our
Duval County teens have graduated to the #1
ranking of having .the state's highest STI (sex-
ually transmitted infections) rates!
And despite a recent decline, Duval
County's teen births continue to exceed the
state and national averages. Something is not
working to reach these kids at greatest risk.
As guardians of this community's health, we
as parents, educators and healthcare profes-
sionals need a multi-pronged attack on teen
sexual health ignorance. Abstinence is mere-
ly one important tool in equipping our teens
to make responsible healthy decisions. To
educate our kids to ONLY abstain from risky
behavior just is not good enough any more in
the face of rising teen HIV/AIDS infections.
It can now be deadly when abstinence fails.
Our teens deserve greater protection and
more information. As a community health
educator and graduate of the University of
Florida's School of Health, I have NEVER once
been taught or do teach the absurd concoc-
tion that a' past misguided letter writer says
comprises the curriculum of "comprehensive
sex education." Northeast Florida's Planned
Parenthood's multi-pronged comprehensive
sex education programming focuses on
empowering the parent to become the sex
education teacher in the home while contin-
ually dialoguing with their children, out-
reaching into the community with age appro-
priate medically accurate abstinence-based
PREVENTION health education and creating
compassionate non-judgmental affordable
access to prevention education and reproduc-
tive medical services for those who responsi-
bly choose not to abstain.
As adults guiding the positive potential of
our community's children, we must not
default in equipping our teenagers with ALL
the necessary tools, skills, values and ALL the
correct information to live a responsible
informed successful healthy life. Planned
Parenthood is proud to be a courageous part-
ner with other community agencies honestly
addressing the real health needs of our teens
in northeast Florida. Significant government
funding should go to ALL community agen-
cies that are positively addressing the needs of

Floridians should say a little
prayer that Florida is spared
Mother Nature's wrath this year.
That's because Florida's citizens
will be on the hook for more of
the losses if the 2007 storm sea-
son resembles those of 2004 and
To calm angry constituents,
lawmakers with the laudable
goal of making property insur-
ance more affordable passed
some flawed legislation.
That legislation expanded the
state-run catastrophe fund that
offers reinsurance to the insur-
ance industry, and it lowered
the rates of Citizens Insurance,
the state-run property insurer,
to make them competitive with
Both changes shift the liabili-
ty for storm damage from insur-
ance companies to Florida's citi-
zens. If we had another
Hurricane Andrew or another
season like those of 2004 and
2005, we would be liable for
more of those losses.
How much? In theory, the
catastrophe .fund and Citizens
might have enough reserves to
avoid needing a bailout. In prac-
tice, however, the reserves aren't
yet adequate, so insurance cus-
tomers are already paying sur-
charges on their policies and
not just on property insurance.
Look closely when you renew
your car insurance. You'll find a
surcharge intended to build up
the state's catastrophe fund. It's
now one percent. In the event
of large losses, that surcharge
could reach 20 percent on
homeowners and auto policies.
These changes work against
the very reason that Floridians
want insurance to" begin with.
The idea of insurance is that
those who are insured pay a pre-
mium up-front, and then in the
event of a loss, the insurance
company bears the loss.
But these changes mean that
for major losses which is what
we want to insure against we
bear more of the risk ourselves.
These 'changes shift the risk
away from the insurance com-
pani p and place .;it lbacki non
Was there a better alternative,
given the fast-rising rates and
shrinking availability after the
very active 2004 and 2005 hurri-
cane seasons? Yes. Paradoxically,
relaxing regulations to allow
market pricing of insurance
would attract more insurers.
The added competition
would tend to hold rates down,
just as competition affects pric-
ing in other industries.
With goods such as cars or
groceries, producers know their
costs before setting prices.
Insurers, in contrast, must set
prices ahead of time based on
projections of the claims they
might need to pay out. Insurers
profit if property damage is low,
as in 2006. However, if storm .
damage is costly, as in 2004 and
2005, they suffer losses.
Insurance is a risky business
by definition because, in
exchange for a fixed payment
made now, the insurers bear
future risks. Because the state
can deny companies a rate hike,
insurers' ability to adjust their
rates is limited. State-mandated
rates that are too low can be
very costly because of this regu-
latory structure. That's why, par-
adoxically, a relaxation of rate
regulation can lead to lower
There's another step the state
could take to make the industry
more price competitive under
the current regulatory scheme:
It could post insurance rates on
a website in an easy-to-access
Floridians ought to able to
input their location and find
out rates charged for property
insurance as easily as they can
now compare rates on one of
those highly advertised websites
touted by auto-insurers.
Providing rate information to
Florida's insurance buyers
would go a long way toward
making the industry more com-
petitive. Because the state regu-
lates the rates, it already has the
information to make this
process easier and the industry
Instead of socializing the
insurance industry, Florida
ought to let competition play
more of a role. The same com-
petitive environment that reins
in profits and "corporate greed"
in other industries can also work
in insurance -- if we let it.

another vehicle, pushing it into the inside lane. The SUV then veered off the roadway and went
through the concrete wall of the building. A passenger in the vehicle that was hit complained of
back injuries, but no other injuries were reported at the scene, police said. They estimated

Church bell brings real source of pride
Original bell finds new permanent location at St. Paul's by the Sea
by KATHY NICOLETTI
The bell from t he original
St. Paul's by the Sea Episcopal
Church building will be
blessed and rededicated fol-
lowing the 10 a.m. service on
"This was the first church at
the beach," said Rev. Penny
Pfab, rector of St. Paul's by the
"The bell is part of our her-
itage..... and a real source of
Earlier this month, the bell
was removed from storage and
placed in its new permanent
location in the church's
In the future, the bell will be
used to honor those who have
died and to celebrate wed-
dings. It will also again be
used as a call to worship, she
In its original position in the
church's bell tower, the sound
of the bell called people to
worship, said Sid Stormes
Spurgin whose family has been
members of SPBTS since 1923.
"It was just one of the most
charming things to hear that
wonderful bell," she said.
St. Paul's by the Sea was
dedicated in 1887 and origi-
nally located at Second Street
South and South Second
Avenue in Jacksonville Beach ,
according to a church history
compiled by SPBTS Historian
and Archivist Harley Henry.
The church was open for
worship only during the sum-
mers and underwent periods
of time when it was vacant.
This may be the reason there
are few records for the first
years of the church, he said.
The bell "must surely .....
have been given to SPBTS
sometime after 1925 when the
church began to provide serv-
ices year-round rather than
only in the summer."
Prior to that time, Henry
said there had probably been
another bell used at the
church. The first bell may
have been a railroad bell.
At that time the railroad
was the main means of trans-
portation to -the beach. The
church was built on land
donated by the Jacksonville
and Atlantic Railroad.
St.Paul's by the Sea contin-
ued as a mission church until
1940 when it officially became
a parish. At that time the
church had had a full time rec-
tor for three years.
The existing bell and bell
tower survived being moved
with the church building in
1952 from the original loca-
tion to the current SPBTS cam-
pus at 5th Street between 12th
and 13th Avenues North in
The building was moved
again in 1970, following the
opening of the current SPBTS
church building in 1967. By
this time the bell tower was
missing from the church and is
believed to have been dam-
aged by a fire, said Henry.
The original church build-
ing now stands at Florida
Boulevard and Fifth Street in
Neptune Beach on the Beaches
Church records do not indi-
cate when the bell was
removed from the tower. It has
been in storage at the church
since the 1970's, said Henry.
During the recent prepara-
tions to move the bell, a cast-
ing date of May 10, '01 was
discovered inside the bell,
said Norm Thompson, a Junior
Warden at SPBTS. .
Earlier this month, the bell
was moved to its new location
in the Memorial Garden.
It sits securely there on a
simple concrete base in keep-
ing with the design of the
church, said Pfab.
"The Memorial Garden is
the ideal place. It is a simple,
peaceful place to be," she said.

'Snapping scapula syndrome'
can affect adolescent athletes
Dixie Blues are vying for another championship
By DAN SHANKS
NCR Sports Reporter
There is a football team in
Jacksonville that is preparing
to defend its championship
from last season. And no, it's
not the Jacksonville Jaguars.
The Jacksonville Dixie Blues
of the Women's Football
League are in their sixth year
of existence. Last season, in
their first year with the WFL,
the Dixie Blues won the
Superior Bowl, beating the
Tennessee Heat 55-24.
Because it's a women's foot-
ball team, people who have
never seen the Dixie Blues
play might get the wrong idea.
Don't expect to see any light-
weight, two-hand touch stuff.
This is the real deal.
"(The biggest misconception
people have is) that they're
gonna see a bunch of powder-
puff looking stuff," said Dixie
Blues head coach Donnie
Braddock of Callahan, who is
in his sixth year with the
team. "Lots of people don't
think girls should be playing
"I always tell people if you
come out and look at them
one time ... you'll really
appreciate what you see. It's
hard to believe that they're
playing (the game) as well as
And.these girls didn't just
come in off the streets, either.
Many of them have impressive
athletic pedigrees in other
sports. The quarterback,
Brantley Mack, who has been
with the team since the begin-
ning, was an All-American
softball player at the
University of South Carolina.
Braddock said Mack can throw
the football 50 yards.
"She's unbelievable, she's
just a great athlete," Braddock
said. "There's nobody out
there like her. Her mechanics
are just as good as Peyton
Then there's Ishika Lay,
who's been with the team for
four years as a wide receiver.
She competed in European
track championships and also
ran track at Purdue University.
Despite only being 5-8, she
can dunk a basketball.
Lay missed one of the
team's games this season to go
to Colorado Springs and com-
pete in the 2007 U.S.
Championships in box in g.

month, but her speed and ath-
letic ability are so impressive
they've allowed her to excel in
The players come from all
walks of life and have to jug-
gle work schedules to partici-
pate in weekly practices and
games. There are three nurses,
six police officers and fire-
fighters and a truck driver for
UPS. There are also five
women on the team who live
in Nassau County.
Georgina German, who has
been with the team for three
seasons, played basketball at
Central Arizona Junior College
and Marshall University. She's
currently works as a personal
trainer at the HIT (High
Intensity Training) Center in
Jacksonville. Her experience
on the football field has
helped with her profession.
"It actually has helped out
with my job," German said. "I
get a lot of football players,
and (the playing experience)
helps them to respect me a lit-
tle more, and vice-versa. (Her
job and playing football) go
When her playing days at
Marshall were over, something
was rrissing. German missed
the competition and the
camaraderie you can only get
from being part of a team.
After moving to Florida in
2003, German was at a Jaguars
game with her brother, and
the Dixie Blues played during
halftime. Seeing them out on
the field rekindled her desire
to play football.
"I've always wanted to play,
ever since I can remember,"
German said, adding that
when she was in eighth grade,
the football coach asked her
to come out for the team, but
her parents wouldn't let her.

Hansbrough mixes passions for film and surfing
By JENNIFER KNOECHEL
Surfing and filming surfers
around the world is a suc-
cessful lifestyle for Josh
Hansbrough. The 24-year-old
Episcopal High and University
of North Florida graduate is
filming surfers for Billabong
DVDs and released his own
full-length DVD, "Surf
Brigade," under his company
Birdman Productions last
"I really like surfing and
that's how I got into video-
making," said Hansbrough,
who majored in broadcasting
"When you're filming
underwater you wear flippers
and swim around out there
like a fish. You have to try to
get in their way; you have to
get right in front of them surf-
ing to get the shot. I've gotten
sucked over the falls and
slammed a few times but
that's the challenge. Get the
shot and get out of there."
"Surf Brigade" is the culmi-
nation of six years of surf
footage featuring local pros
Asher Nolan, Ryan Briggs and
Karina Petroni along with pro
surfers on the world tour Kelly
Slater, Mick Fanning and the
Hobgood brothers. Most of
the footage is from surf trips
to Hawaii and Australia.
"I compiled all the footage
together like a video montage
and action video,"
Hansbrough said. "I like to
watch surf movies to get
pumped up to go surfing so
the DVD is mostly just action

interviews. It's more exciting

the production of "Surf
Brigade" and many of the
team riders for Sunrise are fea-
tured on the DVD.
Hansbrough filmed Ryan
Briggs in Puerto Rico and in
Nicaragua and Cody
Thompson in Puerto Rico this
past year for the Billabong
movie "Frothing" which was a
free DVD in the June 2007
issue of Surfer magazine. He
also shot footage of Karina
Petroni surfing in Puerto Rico
for the show, "American Hot
Rod," which is expected to air
on the Learning Channel in
"I was down there [in
Puerto Rico] on a surf trip
with them and filming so the
show [American Hot Rod] will
use some of my clips and I'll
use some of the clips for my
next movie," Hansbrough
"A lot of times we'll get
together for a surf trip and I'll

Hansbrough is also one of
the best surfers in North
Florida, according to Mitch
Kaufmann, director of the
North Florida District of the
Eastern Surfing Association.,
Hansborough grew up off
Hodges Boulevard in the West
Beaches and started surfing
when he was about 13 years
old. He has successfully com-
peted in the Eastern Surfing
Association and placed well in
several pro-ams over the years
as well as competed for the
UNF surf team which won the
East Coast surfing champi-
onships collegiate level in
He is sponsored by Sunrise
Surf Shop and local shaper
Whisnant Surfboards and
plans to surf in the men's
division of the East Coast
Championships in Cape
Hatteras, N.C. in September.
"He is a really good kid; one
of the best surfers from North
Florida; he surfs like a pro,"
Kaufmann said. "He got into
the whole filming part of surf-
ing which is another lifestyle.
He's more of a soul surfer who
just wants to travel and he's
doing well with that."
Hansbrough became inter-
ested in video production and
started working for Kaufmann
at Atlantic Video when he was
16 years old. He still works for
Kaufmann while pursuing
other areas of videography
such as the Preservation
Project in Jacksonville, found-
ed by John Delaney as part of
the Better Jacksonville Plan.
"The society works to save
the remaining natural
resources like marsh land
from being leveled and over
developed," Hansbrough said.
Hansbrough recently filmed
wildlife such as fish, ospreys
arid dolphins on the north
side of the Atlantic Boulevard
Bridge next to Dutton Island
for the project.
America's Funniest Videos
has also responded to use one
of his skateboarding clips for
the show and a shot at win-
ning the $10,000 grand prize.
"There's a lot of different
opportunities out there," he
said. "It's an ongoing process
all the time. I want to keep
making surf movies and go on
trips surfing and filming."

The Cuban tree frog may
threaten its native counter-

assistant professor with UF's
Institute of Food and

amphibians have already
become a nuisance to home-
owners and utilities workers.
Johnson, based at UF's Gulf

Center in Plant City, wrote a
recently published extension

light brown, they have large
eyes and rough skin. Their
skin is coated with a secretion
that irritates mucus mem-

shouldn't touch the animals
Cuban tree frogs adapt well
to residential areas and some-
times enter homes via pipes
and open doors. This can
cause unpleasant surprises for
when the amphibians turn up
in toilets, one of their favorite
"The frogs are around just
about everybody's homes in
South and Central Florida,"
Johnson said. "That may or
may not be a problem,
depending on how wildlife-
friendly you are."
He's more concerned about
the frogs becoming estab-
lished in natural areas. Early
research suggests they may
eliminate native tree frogs by
competing with them for
food and shelter or by simply
devouring them. In one
wooded area, Johnson set up
PVC pipe "homes" to attract
tree frogs for study. He found
130 Cuban tree frogs and no
Johnson has begun a proj-
ect in the Tampa area, where
researchers from UF, the
University of Tampa and a
Florida-based consulting firm,

Cuban tree frogs from wet-
lands and investigate the
impact on native species.
He's also testing a commer-
cial animal repellent to see if
it can keep Cuban tree frogs
away from electrical utilities.

blackouts and damage equip-
ment by creating short-cir-

The frogs have been a prob-

now cause two or three black-

Perkins believes power
poles attract the frogs because
they offer shelter for the ani-
mals and the insects they eat.
Native species never caused

they're too small to contact

numerous ways to protect

Though they've never tallied

said a single incident can cost

Cuban tree frogs were intro-

via shipping crates from the

An exhibit of local histor-
ical interest, "Sunken
Treasures of the Maple
Leaf," is currently at at the
Museum of Science & History.
The Maple Leaf, a paddle-
wheel steamer chartered by
the U.S. Army for equipment
and baggage transport during
the Civil War, was sunk by a
Confederate mine floating in
the St. Johns River on April 1,
Artifacts from the ship lay
at the bottom of the St. Johns
near Mandarin Point until
1989 when divers from the St.
Expeditions Inc. brought
them to the surface.
More than a hundred of
these artifacts such as a sol-
dier's personal effects and let-
ters are on display.
"The significance of the ves-
sel and its incredible state of
preservation make this site
the most important Civil War
archaeological site known,"
maritime historian Kevin J.
Foster said in 1994.

'Last Stand' well done complement to '300'
by SARAH LINWOOD
y now, most regular
moviegoers are familiar
with 'The 300," the epic
tale of the 480 B.C. Battle of
,, t tre t- fa -a n tale of hctoisrrv,
ijia \ lI:,fto ans"ri colsid r it a
pivotal event in the birth of
In those days, ordinary peo-
ple voting and the "one man,
one vote" concept was a tiny
candle flame among a bonfire
of dictatorial and monarchist
Though the silver screen's
"300" lightly touched on this,
it's too heavy a concept for the
commercial draw needed to
make such films profitable.
Apparently realizing this,
lV's History Channel commis-
sioned Limulus Productions to
tell the REAL story and starkly
lay out its implications. Using
sophisticated digital animation
along with live but unknown
actors, it's all here the blood,
barbarity and the legend.
"Last Stand," as you might
imagine, is really the back-story
, of Thermopylae. One revela- .
' . .. .... --" ..' -. I .
..,tlon inot. ot C65rse, in 'Tn e j
'-300" that's clearly explained in1,
"Last Stand" is why the war
was fought at all.
It wasn't simply a case of a
gigantic Asian empire seeking
to expand its wealth and
power. There was much person-
al animosity behind the war,
extreme hostility that began
more than 150 years before.
Generations on both sides of
the battle understood what
they were fighting for, though
on both sides there were those
merely for booty.
Politicians played a part in
the war too, and they're por-
trayed much as they are today.
When it was convenient for
them to tell the truth, they did.
When it was expedient to lie,
they employed this tactic.
Seeing things then and
events today run parallel is
enough to give the philosopher
o'igenes and lis search for an"
honest man deeper meaning -
than "just another story."
Though most focus on the
300 Spartans who fought to the
death, the battle actually had
many sides..,Touched but light-
ly in "The 300" was the naval
engagement that was just as
critical to the war, a side thor-
oughly and entertainingly (if
war can entertain!) explored in
People and horses had to eat,
have medical care and be taken
care of in myriad ways, espe-
cially the Persians during their
trek from Asia. Those behind
the scenes in all wars, such as
engineers, produced works that
made the battle possible.
Though it may have been
the Classical World where elec-
tricity, steam engines, gunpow-
der and radio communications
weren't even dreamt about,
people then were as clever, if
not more, than the people of
History or war buffs will find
"Last Stand" an incredibly well
done complement to the silver
screen version. The tactics used
at Thermopylae are taught in
today's military academies in
nearly every country; by the
time you read this, "Last
Stand" will be available at
Bravery and honor never
become obsolete, concepts
both flicks teach well.

Happy Birthday Chris
We love and miss you
every moment of every day.
Dad, Mom, Shadd and Kaylee
Chris lays above us in the sky
looking down and wondering why -
Chris asks God, "Why did I have to die so young?"
And God says, "Well, you see, son,
You're better off here with me...
You're closer to your loved ones than you'll ever be!"
With twinkling blue eyes Chris looks up to
God and says, "Yes, now I see!"
So the next time you look up in the sky -
Smile, wave and say I love you
because Chris is up there doing the same.

Natural remedies to clean your home
How many household
cleaning products are
sitting under your
sink? Americans plunk down
billions of dollars each year
on germ warfare to keep their
homes more sanitized and
better smelling. Seeing that
we all probably have at least
a couple of cleaning prod-
ucts, the question is, are they
all necessary? The even big-
ger question is: are they safe?
Many say no. According to
the EPA, many everyday
household cleaners present a
real health risk, and it's no
wonder given their ingredi-
ents. Formaldehyde, petrole-
um and sodium hypochlorite
(bleach) are just a few toxins
proven to contribute to
memory loss, asthma attacks
and dizziness, to name just a
We aren't the only ones at
risk; these substances are
harmful to the earth. Once
flushed down the drain (or
tossed into a landfill) clean-
ing products live a second
life as major pollutants of the
water and air. (And we
thought these cleaners were
doing us a favor!)
Luckily, safer biodegradable
products are popping up
*daily, giving us alternatives
to toxic cleaners. Some are
available at major grocery
chains, but a wider range of
products are available in
health food stores and
online. You can also make
your own effective cleaners
from stuff you have around
the house. (Certain jobs may
require the use of borax and
hydrogen peroxide that,
while natural, are poisonous.)
The next time it's time to
clean, try one of these natu-
HEIDI BAKER and
ral solutions. Remember to
test them first in an incon-
spicuous place for staining.
We encourage you to share
some of your home remedies
with us, too!
Mix together equal parts

bottle to clean surfaces. Wipe

Then scrub with a sponge

then remove with a sponge.

Natural remedies can have
the same cleaning power as
store-bought cleaners minus
the toxicity. If mixing up a
solution before you even
start cleaning seems like too
much work, try out some of
the natural cleaners on the
market. Seventh Generation,
Gaiam, and Ecover all make
natural cleaners and personal
care products that are afford-
able and eco-friendly.
Going green clean means a
safer home overall by limit-
ing your family's (and the
earth's) exposure to danger-
ous chemicals. Plus, it's so
easy you'll probably never

Lockwood shaly loam soil
produces more complex wine
Butch Lindley doesn't look
like a guy to associate
with grapes. White-haired,
stocky and with big mitts, he's
more like a cross between an
elected official and a Vietnam
veteran. Well, he's both of
those, but along the way he
found grapes too.
Today, he's one of three part-
ners in Lockwood Vineyard
Winery where, aside from his
public duties as a county com-
missioner, he helps assemble
these terrific wines.
Mr. Lindley and his wife were
in Annapolis recently for a
friend's wedding and shared
with us his recent releases.
Made in Monterey County -
hot days, cool nights and short
on rain these wines are con-
sistent, focused on fruit and

Lockwood is named after the
soil Lockwood shaly loam -
that is made up of crushed fos-
silized seashells. Vines struggle
to grow through this seemingly
impossible soil, but the result is
a more complex wine. There is
only one other region in
California with this soil.
The winemaker is Larry.
Gomez, who recently returned
to Lockwood after stints at J.
Lohr and Wild Horse. His expe-

to Lockwood's red-wine pro-
Lockwood's trophy wine' is its
Partner's Reserve ($20), only
in its second vintage. Although
its dominated by cabernet
sauvignon (95 percent), it's call
"red wine" every vintage
because the winemaker wants
the option to use other grape
varieties. The 2004 has 5 per-
cent malbec in the blend. A
great value, it sports luscious
black cherry fruit, firm tannins
and a soft mouthfeel. The fruit-
forward style of this wine
makes it enjoyable for current
drinking, a goal of the owners,
says Mr. Lindley.
We also liked the Lockwood
Vineyard Merlot 2004 ($13)
with its silky tannins, spice,
cherry, blueberry and chocolate
The Lockwood Vineyard
Block 7 Pinot Noir 2005 ($21)
represents a shift for the pro-
ducer which had avoided the
fickle grape until the movie
"Sideways" compelled them to
reconsider. Mr. Lindley said he
saw his merlot sales drop when
the movie's main character
denigrated the grape variety.
Unfortunately, the Lockwood
merlot is a better wine that
shouldn't be ignored by merlot
If you are looking for a red to
serve with tonight's dinner, the
Lockwood Vineyard Cabernet
Sauvignon 2005 ($13) repre-
sents a great value. Blended
with malbec and syrah, it has a
soft texture and generous black-
WINE OF THE WEEK
Reserve Meritage 2003 ($12).
Heritage often signals "expen-
sive," but here is a reasonably
priced blend of cabbemet sauvi-
gnon (49 percent), merlot and
cabernet franc from a variety of
California regions. It may not
be unique, but it's a good drink
for the money.

Coffee brewed low-tech is
flavorful, easy on stomach
up the house
in the morn-
ing the way coffee
can. But if coffee
bothers your stom-
ach do you forgo
aroma and morning
delight? This was
my dilemma. It
seemed that coffee
and I were about to
go our separate
ways. I thought I
would have to give
up drinking coffee
and I pined for
that heady, roasted
aroma. It only
took me going 2,000 miles from
home to find out that a simple
appliance could bring back my joy
of drinking coffee again. Although
I typically write about home clean-
ing, decorating and furnishing, I
hope you will indulge me as I
write about one of my favorite
delights in my living space cof-
Recently I returned from a trip
to Costa Rica. It's a beautiful coun-
try of lush rainforests, verdant pas-
tures, and nine volcanoes. Because
of the altitude, the air is cooler in
the summer than it is here and
mornings there are spent sitting
outside enjoying a cup of locally-
grown coffee enjoying cool breezes
on the patio. Having returned
after three years, I'd forgotten my
past trip where I learned how to
brew coffee in a way that would
allow me to enjoy two big cups
without the usual stomach upset.
During a tour of a coffee farm,
or finca, I drank a cup of delicious
coffee called "Tres Generaciones"
from the Doka Estate coffee farm.
Our guide offered me another cup,
which I politely refused explaining
about my tender stomach. He said
the coffee was brewed Costa Rican
style and not with an American
drip coffee maker, which he said is
the reason that Americans com-
plain about coffee bothering their
stomachs. Our knowledgeable
guide told us that Costa Ricans use
boiling water to make coffee, pass-
ing it through a traditional cloth
filter attached to a wooden stand,
called a chorreador.
He explained how the boiling
water released the flavorful oils in
the coffee that also coat the stom-
ach and won't
L problems. Drip cof-
degree water that
T isn't hot enough to
release the oils -
and all their flavor
only the caffeine
S- is released which,
he said, causes the
Our guide suggested
we use a French
WEBER press-style coffee
LUMNIST maker when we
LUMNIST returned home.
That was three
years ago and not
one stomachache in all that time.
But what impressed me on my
return are the customary chor-
reador coffee makers in Costa Rica.
Hot, boiling water is poured into it
and allowed to release all the cof-
fee's goodness. The chorreadors
were plentiful in souvenir shops in
Costa Rica when we last visited,
but weren't as plentiful this trip.
Sadly, simple customs often fade
as technology grows. Even so, this
low-tech method of applying heat
to water and passing it through
coffee grounds will produce an
outstanding cup of coffee that
won't cause your stomach to both-
er you and will surpass the flavor
of drip coffeemakers.
Looking down the grocery aisles
looking at the many choices of
home air fresheners I am struck by
the sheer abundance of scents and
delivery methods. From sprays to
plug-ins, air fragrance manufactur-
ers miss the two smells that most
make me think of home: Coffee
and bacon. Although I don't think
we'll see those scents on the
shelves anytime soon, I do hope
you'll try making coffee with a
chorreador, French press or Melitta
manual drip-style coffee maker.
You might find that in addition to
tasting better, your stomach might
also thank you, and your house
will still be filled with that glori-
ous coffee aroma.

Coffee makers that use boiling water, such as a French press, extract more flavorful oils from the coffee that may also
prevent stomach upset and produce a richer cup of coffee.

INNOVATIVE VASE I recently redid my main bathroom, so I
had to purchase new accessories, curtains, etc. Since I didn't need
the toothbrush holder that came with the tumbler and soap dish,
I converted it into a vase for the vanity. I fill it with water and
stick flowers through the holes. Karen G.
NO WASTE It seems there's always a little bit of leftover
presweetened cereal at the bottom of the box that just won't fill
a bowl. Not to waste it, I mix it with cookie crumbs and melted
butter and use the mixture as a crust for my homemade cheese-
cake. It's a real hit with the family. Alison M.
CLUCK, CLUCK! When I have leftover roast chicken, I make
a casserole with it. I cut up the chicken and add it to some brown
rice. I then put in some curry-powder to taste and butter and heat
in the microwave. It makes a deliciously different second meal.
TWO TO TANGO Since the kids are all grown, it's just me and
my husband for dinner. It sometimes makes preparing meals dif-
ficult for me since I'm used to serving a crowd. I came up with a
great idea, though, for stuffing. When I make it, I bake the stuff-
ing in muffin tins. This way, each is an individual serving. I freeze
what I don't need and take it out, serving by serving, when I need
it. Ellen T.
CLEAN WALLS I love those new mops to which you can
attach dry dust cloths. I not only use them on my kitchen and
bathroom floors, but I use them to dust my walls. The cloths are
treated, so they absorb all the dust. This is especially good if you
have forced-air oil heat, which makes everything so dirty.

1 Tour Horoscope
by CHARLES COOPER
ARfES (March 21 to April 19) You pick up
a financial hp this week quite by accident.
It's good advice too. If you apply this knowl-
edge correctly, you can profit from it.
TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You're chal-
lenged intellectually this week. However,
your thinking is sharp, so you deal with this
quite well. Later in the week, you'll be
champing at the bit for some night life.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You need to
be patient this week with someone in
authority. While you have some great ideas,
the early part of the week isn't good to
impart them. Later, this person will be much
CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Real estate
transactions., or any other buying and selling
ventures, are favored this week. Take full
advantage of this. However, remember that
honesty is the best policy if you're the seller.
LEO (July 23 to August 22) You have a yen
to express yourself creatively this week. Tap
into this, even though you may feel some-
what self-indulgent. Over the weekend,
going out is better than inviting people over.
VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Your
judgment is right on the mark this week.
Someone who's cajoling you isn't sincere.
You are right to distrust this person.
LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Love
relationships are favored this week. The two
of you reach a new, mutually satisfying
understanding. Later in the week, you may
find yourself scrambling to get work done.
SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21)
You're liable to be intolerant this week of
incompetent people. However, you have the
ability to lead by example. Patience will go a
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December
21) You're thinking twice about a commit-
ment you made financially. Perhaps it's best
to.seekbout th.e.adxvce from anexpert in this
area. It's never too late to change your mind.
CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19)
Your initiative and drive spur you to greater
heights this week at work. Bigwigs take
notice, but this takes place behind the
scenes. Over the weekend, social interests are
AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18)
Plans you make this week bode well for your
future. Whether business or personal, things
are going your way. Later in the week, you
experience some restlessness.
PISCES (February 19 to March 20) You and
a friend see eye to eye this week, which isn't
always the case. Enjoy this renewed cama-
raderie. Sometimes, you have a tendency to
be too much of a loner.
